Frederik Wurm leads the Sustainable Polymer Chemistry Group at the University of Twente (Enschede, NL) and acts as an Editor for the “European Polymer Journal”. The broad research interests of Frederik Wurm cover the molecular design and development for new synthetic strategies of novel polymeric materials and focus in recent years on the synthesis of novel biodegradable polymers and the modification and formulation of biopolymers. The SPC group designs materials with molecular defined functions for degradable polymers and nanocarriers for agricultural or biomedical applications, with a special interest in phosphorus-based polymers and lignin. Frederik received his Ph.D. in 2009 (JGU, Mainz, D). After a two-year stay at EPFL (CH) as a Humboldt fellow, he joined the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, D) and finished his habilitation in Macromolecular Chemistry in 2016. In 2020, he was appointed as a full professor at UT. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed articles and his research was awarded several times.
